Hey guys, I came across a 3 in 1 listed on Craigslist and I'm having trouble identifying the manufacturer and model. It seems the wife of the owner is actually the one selling it and she doesn't email/text and her english isn't great so you get the issue. I'm guessing it's a Smithy but I don't know a ton about 3 in 1 machines. Anyone steer me in the right direction?

I'm guessing it is a Smithy CB-1220XL, anyone confirm?

with that green color it might be a grizzly but others will correct me if I'm wrong.

after looking at the grizzly I don't think it is one you might be right.

It is one sold by Enco, had one like it for three years and sold it a year ago. All all the Chinese import 3 in 1's are pretty much the same with maybe a half a dozen variations. Parts available through Grizzly. As others have pointed out, the lathe works decently, the mill function leaves a lot to be desired.

As much as I'd like an Atlas or South Bend 10" or 12" machine, the 3 in 1 seems to suit my needs pretty well... at least until I can afford something nicer. The seller claims to have everything that came with the machine and some extras. She listed it for $800, I think I can get it for $600-650. Assuming everything is there, working and in good shape would that be a decent price?

Thanks for the replies MoN, Bob and Steve. Great picture Bob. Any idea what the differences are between an AT-300 and a CB-1220XL?

Besides $$$ the length and it prob has f/r power feed. I would buy an AT-300 just for fun if I could get it cheap enough...Bob

I don't necessarily need a mill at the moment, but I do need a larger swing than most of the "mini" machines allow. Having the mill is just a plus. I have a couple projects on hold until I get a machine and the profits from these projects will allow me to purchase what I want rather than what I can afford. I just need to start making chips.

Well bad news guys, the seller wasn't willing to play ball. She pretty much hung up on me when I tried to negotiate a lower price than what she had listed it for, and now the listing has been deleted. I don't know if someone else bought it or what. I've been doing a lot of thinking and searching and I pretty sure I'm going to get a Rockwell 10. I just really like the manufacturer and the features they have. I need a full featured machine with a decent swing and the Rockwells seem to fit my needs and skill level (aka noob). I did however learn a lot about the 3 in 1 machines from you guys and I appreciate the advice, this community really knows how to make a new guy feel welcome. Who knows, maybe I'll get a 3 in 1 down the line. If anyone sees any good deals out there, be sure to let me know.

Thanks again
Matt
